When Chia Seeds hit liquid they emit this lovely goo which surrounds the seed and really resembles Tapioca pearls. You can read all about the wonderful benefits of Chia Seeds on the Living Foods website:
¼ cup Sesame seeds, Grind in coffee grinder
1 cup Water
Sweetener to taste (we used honey)
2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
.125 cup Chia Seeds
Add ground sesame seeds, water, sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon to blender and blend well. Pour contents of blender into strainer over bowl. Add 1/8 cup Chia Seeds and stir. Put in fridge and take it out to stir every 10 minutes or so until the Chia Seeds have finished releasing their yummy gooey goodness. It shouldn’t take longer than 1/2 an hour to be fully ready to eat.
You could use any kind of nut milk really, I just really like sesame seed milk and so does my toddler – she gobbled it up and asked for more!
